I am not a lawyer but I suspect the reason this stuff with wake and surf boats continues is that there has not been a case to set precendence yet. Once a case is settled in favor of affected boaters, the floodgates will open. Can't happen to soon in my opinion. 'spoon
I would imagine it continues because no one has been severly injured enough to get a cop on the water, press the "wake" issue, go to a hospital, get a lawyer and sue.
everyone complains on the TFF but no one is seriously hurt enough by a wake boat to pursue real legal action, like the narrative above. When someone does, the landscape (waterscape) will change. Until then we will just bitch about the wake boats like we are the only people using the lake.
